Rhodes wants minor change in powerplays

September 28, 2009 02:33 PM

Former South African Batsman and one of the greatest fielders in the game Jonty Rhodes has come up with a new idea regarding power plays.

Rhodes said all the power plays (including batting and fielding) should be taken within the 31st over of the match.

“All the power play over’s, including the one by the batting side, should be taken by the 31st over. They could bring in this rule. This way could have plenty of action between over’s 20 and 30. And the last twenty over’s are bound to be interesting in any case,”—he said.

He also said that Twenty20 format has made lots of changes especially in the South African cricket.

“A lot of families are coming to watch the game which is good. The stands are getting filled up in south Africa,”—he said.

Rhodes all said that Twenty20 cricket has brought lots of changes in fielding standards.

“Twent20 has made the game faster. The batsmen are playing lots of strokes and the standard of fielding has gone up.”—he said.
